I get the following error when I check for upgrades: "Unable to download updates: W: An error occurred during the signature verification. The repository is not updated and the previous index files will be used. GPG error: https://brave-browser-apt-release.s3.brave.com stable InRelease: The following signatures couldn’t be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY A8580BDC82D3DC6C"
BTW- I am connected to the main server for downloads. Plus I have uninstalled the Brave app.
Does anyone have a solution for this? Thanks ahead for any suggestion/solutions.
There are a couple of apt commands you can try apt-get autoclean apt-get clean
They clean out package files
and apt-get -f install apt-get dist-upgrade
run those more than once. Clears dependdncy issues
and apt-get --fix-missing ......
ignores things that cant be retrieved or are corrupted
and apt-get check
updates cache and checkes for broken dependencies
If all that fails, I think you need a fresh install
Broken package systems can be unfixable.
The ONLY “official” repositories for Brave are Brave themselves! Distro vendors don’t offer it - it’s Chromium based, but does more - it’s my browser of choice, I briefly went back to Google Chrome for 2 weeks about 2 years ago - but COULDN’T stand all the ads I’d forgotten about. So - I use Brave for personal stuff (sync’d across 4 desktops [2 macos 2 linux]) and MS Edge for work stuff (using my work O365 account to sync, also, across 4 desktops).
I like your solution (remove the files from /etc/apt/sources.list.d/) - I often use this method if I come across “dependancy hell” - and I was just about to suggest this but saw you’d already arrived there
